New Draft Hero Design

  • 2
  • Announcement
  • Updated 2 weeks ago
We have launched a new design of the Draft Analyzer called "Draft Hero". 

  1. This design is intended to be more intuitive and easier to navigate.  
  2. It has the same features as the Black and Classic White designs.  
  3. We just launched it today and will work through all initial hick-ups, fixes and feedback immediately.
  4. If you run into any problems, let us know and use the other two designs in the meantime.
  5. IDPs will not be supported in the Draft Hero design until next summer.  All other settings are supported.

My Draft Plan is different on Draft Hero than Black Design.  Draft Hero is showing a keeper as part of my optimal draft.

I think I know what is going on and it's probably not specific to Draft Hero.  Ekeler was entered as a keeper originally for 9th round, then draft picks were changed using Custom Draft Order.  Keepers after that was no longer entered as rounds but actual draft position.  On the Draft Grid, Ekeler is highlighted in Blue while the other keepers are highlighted in Green.  I'll bet that if I drop the Ekeler keeper and re-entered it, it would be fine.

More specifically-how can I edit my draft plan? I see it as an option I’m the drop down but can’t quite figure out how to edit.

Player projections arent working in GM Tools. Only ESPN ADP available. Standings not up yet. Top 5 recommender tool is recommending 5 TES in round 2 for me so thats not working properly. Thats what ive found so far

I am having a similar issue where only CBS PPR ADP is available. I use 2 QB PPR in B&W so obviously the recommendations in mocks are wildly skewed in hero.

I’ve tried running mock drafts with Hero on 2 different computers and having a freeze up issue. System becomes unresponsive and I have to close the browser. I’m running Google Chrome. Anyone else having a problem?

Works fine with Black and White versions.

Have a fix ready for this. Should be uploaded by 3pm EST today after some further testing.  The optimal team engine freezes when it hits a few hundred thousand roster combinations being evaluated.

Thanks for fixing - appears that worked for the keepers.  New issue popped up though - as I'm running a mock draft I get to about pick 112/113 out of 130 and then it just stops/freezes up.  I can't even make manual selections for anyone.

I see that as well.  After your final pick is made, the app freezes.  We will have that fixed asap.

I can't even search for a player. I type in a name and nothing happens. I tried F12. Clicking Draft Grid shows my keepers and if I click Start Mock I have to go to draft grid to view who was chosen and still nothing shows under players or Top 5 etc. Am I missing something? LagueID - 175124

Joe - There was a glitch in the app loading your league settings. I fixed it and all looks good now.  It appears the scoring rule for Points per Passing Yard was imported as 0.4 instead of 0.04.  Just wanted to make sure 0.04 is correct...that is 25 passing yards for 1 point.

You should be good to go.

Yes that is correct - 1 per 25 yards. I'll give it a shot now. Thanks!

Glitches I have noticed:

1. You can't reset the draft order. Upon pressing Restart, nothing happens
2. When using custom blend for player projections in the GM Tools, you can't edit the percentages for the sites you purchased.
3. If you open Edit Strategy for draft strategy by position under GM Tools, you can't close the pop up and have to refresh the screen.
4. After my last pick when mock drafting, the site won't go forward to finish mocking. I have to manually choose a player for the last few picks.

Any update on this... GM Tools just aren't working the Draft Hero mode. Here's a screencam of the issue using Chrome on Mac.

When I do mock drafts it always makes other teams pick up QB's like Marriota and Dalton in the 2nd round. Is this a glitch?

Draft is in 50 minutes, judging by the comments might be best NOT to use this Hero Design due to bugs?

Hi BoDean - The Draft Hero version is the most user friendly and I recommend it for basic drafts, but some of the advanced features (mock drafts) aren't quite bullet proof yet as it is new.  We are fixing everything we can, but if you depend on the advanced features like the Draft Plan and targeting players, I would personally feel a little more comfortable with the Black or Classic White versions for this weekend. Draft Hero should be 100% soon though as you guys are providing very helpful feedback.

Welcome back BoDean!

Toby - I think it is just a little confusion with the Keepers and mock draft.  You have a Keeper at pick 90 and then a pick at 91.  The mock draft engine stops on your pick 91 which is the first pick of the 10th round and waits until you make a pick.  If you click Start Mock Draft instead of making a pick, the mock draft engine is turned on but it is still waiting for you to make a pick. Does that make sense or help?

Matt - I looked at your league.  Their are duplicate Team IDs for Team 12.  I am guessing that last team should be Team ID 10?

Restart the draft to clear all draft picks, change the Team ID and try again.  That should get you going.

I like the overall Draft Hero design, but I really miss having a players ADP in their box in the draft grid.  Can this be added?

I love the new Draft Hero design!  Will we be able to use our own custom Player Projections/ Rankings in it?

Love to hear that!  Yes. That will be wired up this weekend. About to launch a new Auction Analyzer with the new Draft Hero style design.  In the meantime, upload your projections into the DA Black or Classic White and then switch over to the Draft Hero.  Lmk if it works...it should.

Will it just default to my custom rankings since there is not an option in GM Tools to select Custom player projections like in the Back and White versions?

Thanks!!!

Hi Ted...I'm not sure how the My Watchlist is sorted but is it possible to have it sorted by ADP or position?

Thanks!

For some reason around round 10-11 when mock draft recommends a Defense. I pick up the defense, the next round it recommends another defense. But if I switch back to black, it recommends another position player. I set up a test league just to test it again. ID#216323

Delbert - Go to General Settings and make sure your team is the one selected in the Teams tab.  Lmk if that doesn't solve it.  If you can post your League ID or a screen shot, that will help us address it.  Should be easy.

While doing a mock in Draft Hero, I clicked undo in the draft controls and it removed the players drafted, but now it says those players are no longer available even though they havent actually been drafted any more.
